Don't forget the burbs. I get to the city sometimes using the regional rail Paoli/Thorndale line.

that's a given, the more we all get to know each other, the more we have been doing for each other. this is a great group of folks, you should have no problems finding whatever you need/want/desire. and if all else fails, there's always someone around here who "has a guy"...lol

chomper149 there actually is a lfs on penns campus on 40th street. It has your run of the mill fish along with a few exotics at times. Prices on supplies seem a little high but fish seem pretty well priced. Its an okay fish store but i find myself shopping at home and bring goods back to school in philly.

You don't need a LFS for that. When you get here next fall, I am pretty sure you will be able to find one of the local hobbyist that will have have you are looking for.

As for LFS.. There is Monster Pets but you don't want to go there.
